Just like our unpredictable weather, it’s really hard to determine as to when someone’s about to catch a cold. And while we all know it’s rainy season once again, it does not mean that we have to put our health at risk. Below, we’ve listed our top health tips you should definitely not take for granted- especially at times when you need it most!
Prevention should come in handy
When we say prevention, we actually mean being ahead of your sickness. Make sure to grab this go-to and all-in-one kit that comes with a hand gel, bar soap, wet wipes, toothbrush, toothpaste, pocket tissue, towel, and comb. Now you do not have to suffer from bringing bulky bags because we made sure this bundle comes in handy for your utmost convenience. Plus, have we mentioned that it is just under 200 Pesos?
Guard your plate
As the saying goes, you are what you eat. You may not have control as to what the weather might bring you, but you you can decide what you will take on your plate. A healthy lifestyle does not necessarily equate to expensive gym membership, and first class fitness equipment. Sometimes, all it takes is the habit of eating smart. Invest in good cook books particularly on the low calorie diet as it will help build your stamina in the long run.

Maintain your health equilibrium
Most people consume an abundance of highly processed food that acidify the body. As a result, they are afflicted with health problems ranging from minor skin irritations, chronic fatigue, back pain, and depression to arthritis, ulcers, and osteoporosis. To enjoy optimum health, the body needs balanced quantities of alkaline and acid substances. In The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health, naturopath and detoxification expert Christopher Vasey shows how a simple change in diet to restore your acid-alkaline balance can result in vast improvements in health.
Vasey provides easy test methods to determine your acid levels and instructs how to interpret these test results. Rather than organizing alkaline and acid foods based on their chemical composition, he categorizes foods by their effect on the body, explaining that some foods, such as fruits, can have either an alkalizing or an acidifying effect, depending on who eats them. In this updated and expanded second edition, he provides the latest information on proper hydration and deacidification, important alkalizing supplements, and how to eliminate the body’s accumulated acids through intestinal cleansing. He also includes a new, detailed example of an alkaline detoxifying diet and explains how to design a diet best suited for your particular health needs.
